Aloha from the big island bruddas & sistas. We need your help in figuring out how to remove well established california grass in order to begin planting a forest garden. we live in the tropics where this grass grows vigorously and has deep and expansive root systems... so we are currently using raised beds with a few layers of shade cloth to prevent the california grass from growing in our massive beds.. which does work very well.. but its no forest garden. So, how do we get rid of this grass to plant a ground cover of say purple sweet potatoes, a variety of squash, mellons, pigeon peas, berries, medicinal herbs, pest repellong plants a variety of spinaches and more. Thank for your time and we are looking forward to the solution. keep on planting those seeds of positive progression! Mahalo
